I have no cd to download my quick cam


Unplug your cam
uninstall any current webcam software
restart your computer
visit the logitech website - identify your cam and click on the picture
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405
download the installer.
run the installation set up and note the options - you may not want the Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon is a must.
Note - you will also need DirectX download to support your webcam - this is probably covered in the installer
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista x Yahoo Messenger

If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

Friends cannot see me in video chat.


To solve your problem instead of fixing it or having it fix, I'd buy another one to be honest with you. Get a Logitech Web Cam there cheap but yet there very good.
